Bob loved his sports. His favourite teams were the Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago Blackhawks, the Dallas Cowboys and the Hamilton Tiger Cats. He enjoyed winters in Florida and would go to a lot of grapefruit league ball games for Toronto and Philadelphia. Bob played hockey and was a goalie. He started out on the pond using Sears Catalogs for pads and played up to Junior 'B' and then later in life playing recreationally seniors hockey with the Old-Timers and travelled in the United States and abroad to Switzerland. He even got a few MVP's under his belt for which he was super proud.

Sorry to have missed the funeral. We just found out.
I can remember, as a boy, watching Bob play hockey for the Intermediate Hockey Team in Beeton, and playing baseball in Beeton as well. He was always happy and friendly, and had time to encourage us kids. My parents, Helen and Frank Lisk, were good friends.
If not planned for 'family only' please let us know when the internment in Beeton will take place.
He was a good man.

My condolences to Bob's family and to Eva. Thanks to Rick for informing me of his dad's passing. My (late) husband John Falck worked with Bob (at Lennox Ind.) more than 50 years ago and we became good friends with the Kearns family, sharing good times at the cottage in Fenelon Falls. Thoughts of Bob are always of his smile and giggles, ever ready to help anyone with anything, I never heard him speak an unkind word and none was spoken of him. He was one of the people who helped make the world a nicer place. His family can be proud and grateful to have had such good parents.
Bob dealt with some difficult times over the years; we were happy knowing that for a time he had Eva to share and enjoy a part of his life with.
